The ACCUPLACER is a placement instrument, created by CollegeBoard, and used by post-secondary institutions in Indiana and surrounding states to place college students into coursework appropriate for the students' skill level.

The following chart shows the ACCUPLACER scores needed for placement into the following courses.  Click on the MATH classes below for more information about which math pathway matches your degree program:
